The Pearl Monument, Corniche Doha Reviews
A quick stop at the Pearl Monument Jan 03, 2011
Doha has always been known for its gorgeous pearls... everywhere you look you can see tributes to the wonderful pearl!! However, none are as captivating at the Pearl Monument/Fountain that is located along the Dhow Harbour on the Corniche.. You can't miss it.. Just try Googling the word "Doha" chances are you will see a picture of this pearl!!
What it is - basically it's just a beautiful oyster fountain with a gigantic pearl inside... You can see many tourists and locals just hanging out near it.. taking lots of pictures and enjoying the beautiful Doha skyline behind it..
I recommend taking a quick stop while you are in your taxi to enjoy it... it is pretty much in the middle of nowhere.. so specifically taking a cab to it would be quite pricey... but you can definitely stop on your way from one place to another as you would probably drive along the corniche anyway.... Best times to visit are sunset... and mostly early Friday mornings as most locals are not out at that time!!
